Great news!

Dear friends,

I called and got in to see my oncologist today to go over the test results. The wait is over. There is no cancer in any organs or nodes or bones that showed up on the scans. There is some arthritis and some other things that showed up, but nothing serious and none of it was cancer. My doctor told me to have another scan done and then come back in 6 months.

While I was there I read some articles and one of them said that the 3 types of chemo that I had can cause long term fatigue in some patients. So most likely that is what is causing my low reserves of energy. Knowing there is no cancer is a huge relief. I can get the extra rest I need, take care of myself and then get on with life. I am trying to not get over committed, while at the same time there are many things I would like to do and wish I had more energy to do them.

The children's director at the church we are attending has asked me to consider helping with the Wednesday night curriculum for the kids. She would like to integrate missions into the program and used the THUMB Caleb Project materials last year. She is excited about my connection to that. There is a team working with the kids who can implement curriculum if I give it to them. I wouldn't have to do all the work which would be nice. I think I can help without wearing myself out too much. I have many lessons that I can let them use.

Tomorrow morning I will see my shoulder surgeon for a last check up. My shoulder isn't perfect, but it is doing really well.

Thank you so much for praying for me! I think God has been at work in my body. Blessings-
